I’m a bit late on this. Yesterday offered rejuvenating time for outdoor activities. 🙂
My passion is seeking ‘truth’ in our politics. It’s annoying to some and informative to others. I feel that my granddaughters’ futures depend on our U.S. political decisions and policies. For that reason, I have an insatiable appetite for “goings on”.
Since I’m retired, I have the time to watch events on C-Span as they transpire. I also have time to research topics from multiple points of view. Our media has failed us on matters of ‘truth’, so to stay well informed, watching events as they happen in unedited fashion is my mission. For those family and friends, who trust my fairness and instincts, it has been valuable to them. Much of our population is just too busy to absorb news beyond headlines. We all know that headlines are often misleading and sensationalized so knowing someone, whom they can trust to report the numerous elements on topics, is essential to staying informed. I often phrase my reporting as factual developments rather than opinion but readily offer opinion when asked. Everyone should know as much as possible especially for voting purposes.
Unfortunately, hopeful news in this arena is hard to uncover but the media’s hype on a new ‘crisis’ everyday requires me to offer temperance with gathered facts as well. It’s an exhausting and “soul sapping” task so I take time to be outdoors and relax in-between. Consider the ‘passions’ mentioned in this thread. Are the people in Communist China allowed to pursue them? Our freedoms are what make all our humane pursuits possible. To me, if our political system stops working on our country’s behalf (primarily in failing to defend our Constitution), ALL other things people hold dear will be at risk. It is the bedrock for our future survival.
Just for you! A new product with ‘unique features’ that protects your ‘health and wellbeing’! Don’t miss your chance to ‘early access’ !
If that doesn’t sound fishy to you, already, you’ve got a lot to learn.
This product not only guides you to better sleeping habits and a healthier lifestyle, it ‘impartially improves your relationships’! Yes…it offers you ‘award points’ for positive behavior and deducts points for improper behavior. (Not to be confused with Communist China’s citizenship merit system.) It’s ALL about helping YOU! One delightful feature, takes a 3D measurement of your body offering a ‘non-judgemental ‘analysis of your body fat ! That’s right folks! Who needs those fat shaming doctors? The wristband (aka health band) has a camera, microphone, and the capability of compiling data on your sleeping and movement patterns. (Of course, we guarantee all data is deleted after processing.) BUT WAIT… this little beauty interprets your ‘tone’ when interacting with others. That’s right! It not only let’s you know that something is triggering unpleasant, unhealthy, emotions for you, it serves as a guidance to how OTHERS may interpret your words. And you thought personal health was about you personally? NOPE, how the world perceives you is JUST as important, silly. (Remember We ARE the World?) So… get yourself in on the Early Access plan. A wristband at a reduced cost AND a free 6 month subscription to an operation center (which refuses to look at your data).
Since so many other online writers have blogs dedicated to their writings, I’ve decided to jump onto the bandwagon. All posts published here will be either fiction or poetry, some new, and some previously published on various places on the Internet. Some of my works are conventional, and some are quirky. All fiction posted here, except for fan fiction, will include the letters "rose" somewhere, as a tribute to my Baba.
